Alaska #2

Well, I just want to update things on Alaska. We are leaving a week from Saturday around noon and will be there 10 days.
Financially-we were able to raise 100% and then some for our trip!
PRAISE GOD! When we first heard that the trip was going to be around $20,000 we were a little scared. For me, it has helped me see so much what God can do and has confirmed that we are supposed to be in Alaska. That is so exciting!
Our team is coming together. We are going to be doing 3 or so days of VBS with the kids and then try to have an adult service following that. During the day, we will be working on the pastor's house. We are praying for our hearts as well as the hearts of those 313 in Elim, Alaska. I am not sure how we begin to touch people who are facing what these hearts face (90% of the females abused!!!), but I know for sure we are supposed to be there. Other than that-God is going to do the rest! Thanks for your prayers. We appreciate them so much.

This picture (to the left) was sent out on the front of our postcard to our church. We chose this picture out of about 2000 and found out later that this lady committed suicide last year. To use that showed the reality of bush Alaska and what these people are facing. Please pray!

Wow, you guys! It is heart-wrenching and overwhelming to read about the despair and spiritual need in Alaska. We will be praying for the people to see Christ in you as well asthe hope He offers for them.

BTW: Did you say you raised over $20,000? Amazing! What an awesome God we serve!
